Bruno Guimarães pens contract extension with Newcastle United

Bruno Guimarães was the first major signing for Newcastle after the club was acquired by a Saudi consortium. Since then, the Brazilian has repaid their faith in him by impressing in the Premier League.

Last season, he played a crucial role as they secured a top-four spot, earning them a place in the Champions League this season. Despite interest from several big clubs, including those within the Premier League, Bruno Guimarães has now pledged his commitment to Newcastle.

After once again impressing in a historic 4-1 win against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, Guimarães has been awarded a contract extension, which he signed today. He has committed himself to the Magpies until June 2028. While the fans will be happy that he will stay at the club for many years, renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano has said the contract includes a £100 million release clause that can be activated sometime in the future.

Nevertheless, the club will be happy to have secured the 25 year old footballer, who has been performing very well for them. He had 5 goals and 5 assists for them last season and was crucial in the midfield for their UCL qualification. Being a great passer of the ball, and being technically gifted, he can bring down opponent defenses easily. He is also a good ball winner and helps out his side defensively.

In an interview with the club’s official website, he said, “I’m so happy here. It’s a place that is so comfortable to be and I hope to keep making the supporters happy and helping the team do well. That’s my goal, because there are no words to describe how happy I am to be here.”

Being a player with a unique profile, Bruno was sought after by many clubs, including Barcelona, Liverpool, and others. He has now declined all of these interests by choosing to stay at St. James’ Park, where he will continue to develop his talents and reputation. He is undeniably a significant part of the club’s ambitious plans for the future.

Bruno Guimarães is also widely beloved by the fans, especially after he dominated PSG by assisting in a goal. The fans at the Saint James Park showed him their love and appreciation, applauding him as he left the pitch.

However, the Newcastle fans also did something surprising. They started throwing Kinder surprise eggs at the player, which was indeed surprising since it is a kid’s chocolate. Later Bruno himself revealed that it was because he loved the chocolate and the fans threw it to share their love for him.

He said about the surprising gesture by the fans, “We were talking with the fans after the match, and they started throwing Kinder eggs on the field, but I was a little embarrassed to take them.”

Bruno was clearly moved by the gesture and even highlighted captain Kieran Trippier‘s role in the club. “It’s nice, it’s recognition. I think for what I did for the club, signing at one of the worst times for the club, when no one believed in it, me and Trippier. It’s certainly very special.”

Bruno Guimarães has no time to celebrate however, as Newcastle takes on West Ham in the league tonight, as they hope to win to continue their impressive form.
